A savory take on French toast
French toast, to me, is a sweet affair. Maple syrup and powdered sugar are my go-to toppings. Not ketchup.
But Brits like their French toast savory, often topping theirs with Marmite, ketchup or brown sauce. I remember the first time one of my flatmates in Scotland made a traditional breakfast and included French toast, but this was a really simplified, stripped down version. No syrup, no powdered sugar. Just this white bread, dipped in egg with salt and pepper, and fried to a crisp golden brown and served with ketchup. I could barely mentally compute the concept, and then after trying it, I was pleasantly surprised.
Do you prefer your French toast savory or sweet?

I’m definitely with you on preferring my french toast sweet. Maple syrup or powdered sugar sounds delish. Fresh fruit sometimes too. I’ll save the ketchup for my eggs, potatoes or omu-rice. 🙂
